You can try to suffocate them, hide them, or cover them up with these numbing/distracting strategies work: ⁣

As a homeschooling mom, I have collected lots of tricks and tips from seasoned mamas before me and come up with a few of my own. That’s the beauty of homeschool-everything can be adapted and tailored to how each of your little people learn best. ⁣

One strategy that we utilize regularly is “Pick 5”. Every school day, each of my kiddos choose 4/5 cards. Once they are completed, they are out of the rotation. ⁣

Throughout the week they get to all of their tasks that way but in a way they get to have autonomy and choice. Each child’s boards are similar but not exactly the same. I’ve tailored each of them to reflect each child’s interests and needs. ⁣

I realized, I am the same way. When I sit down to work, I have systems and routines. And yet sometimes they change. Sometimes I want the hard stuff out of the way first. Sometimes I need to free up my brain by doing something creative in order to be able to focus. Choices build curiosity and productivity. They also give us a chance to practice our FLEXIBILITY skills. In what ways do you offer your kids choices?
